Is Wi-Fi making your child ill?
  As France bans Wi-Fi in nursery and primary 
schools, a British expert who has given up using 
wireless gadgets says we should do the same

  Six years ago, Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe moved to 
the country, stopped carrying a mobile phone and 
sacrificed a successful career in emergency 
medicine to focus on a new medical interest – 
radiation emitted by Wi-Fi, mobiles and other wireless devices.

  She is now one of the country’s few 
professional advisers on medical conditions 
related to radiofrequency (RF) radiation and 
other electromagnetic fields (EMFs).

  “I was using wireless devices before most 
people I knew – I loved it,” says Mallery-Blythe, 
who was ahead of the tech trend even in 1985 when 
she was handed her first mobile phone, aged 10.

  “But as soon as I started digesting the 
literature on EMFs it was a no-brainer,” she says 
of her decision to relinquish wireless gadgets.

  “I wasn’t willing to take that kind of risk for 
something that was purely convenient.”

  Her interest in EMFs started in 2009 after she 
began noticing increasing trends in certain 
symptoms – headaches, insomnia, fatigue and 
palpitations, but also more serious conditions 
including brain tumours in young people, 
fertility problems and accelerating neurological 
diseases such as early onset Alzheimer’s and 
autism. As yet there is still no scientific proof 
that relates these diseases to radiation, but 
Mallery-Blythe is among a not insignificant 
number of scientists and practitioners concerned 
by those studies that do highlight cause for more precaution.

  Over the past few years, as Wi-Fi, laptops and 
iPads have become increasingly prevalent in 
classrooms, Mallery-Blythe says “hundreds” of 
families have sought her help with what they 
believe to be EMF-related diseases and health issues.

  One such case is that of nine-year-old Jessica 
Lewis’s family. In the autumn term of 2011, 
Jessica started to complain that she was getting 
bad headaches at school. She was also feeling 
overly tired, developed rashes on her legs and 
her parents said she looked “completely washed 
out” after school, particularly on Mondays. A 
quick internet search threw up a forum where 
parents had written that their children 
complained of similar symptoms after installing Wi-Fi.

  “I ignored it. We didn’t know anything about 
Wi-Fi then,” says Jessica’s father, Paul Lewis. 
“We didn’t think her school had it.”

  Later that term, at a parents’ evening, he 
noticed a Wi-Fi router near Jessica’s desk in her 
new form classroom. As it turned out, Monday was 
the day of the week the whole class worked on laptops.

  When a local GP backed up Lewis’s suspicions 
about Wi-Fi being the probable cause of Jessica’s 
headaches, he went to some lengths to try to 
convince Spotbrough Copley Junior School in 
Doncaster to use wires instead of Wi-Fi, even 
offering to pay for the school building to be wired with cables.

Cast out Hypocrisie and Lust, which follows whores:
Then England sit in rest; Thy sorrows will have end;
Thy Sons will live in peace, and each will be a friend.
